Childcare Assistance

How to Get Help With Child Care Expenses

To help determine whether you qualify for child care assistance, call one of our child care eligibility specialists at 937-327-1700 for more information.

Assistance also is available at:
BenefitsPlus Division
Building A
1345 Lagonda Avenue Springfield
Springfield, OH 45503

*Applications available at the front desk and can be dropped off or mailed in.


To qualify, families must:
  • Be employed or enrolled in a training or educational program
  • Meet family size and gross monthly income guidelines
Qualifying families pay a portion of child care expenses, based on income and family size. They may use only licensed child care providers or centers under contract with Clark County Department of Job and Family Services. Becoming a licensed provider is a simple process. Often families continue with their existing provider once the provider becomes licensed.

For a listing of licensed providers call 4C for Children at 937-220-9660 or 800-256-1296.
